My oh my. Obama and the democrats have just been hoisted by their own petard!
This is really and truly delicious. If you saw Barack Obama’s totally staged townhall meeting in Portsmouth, NH, you saw something right out of central casting. I mean that was some serious stagecraft.
We’ve all seen the many highly contentious townhall meetings on TV, and you simply don’t see a quiet, gentle, supportive crowd. It just ain’t happening!
What you do see are some angry middle aged and senior citizens who are not taking this lying down! You see people who have never done anything political in their lives who have become activists!
So this precious moment during Obama’s campaign stop just didn’t pass the smell test. The second person "randomly selected" to ask the Dear Leader a question was young Julie Hall. She asks her question at 29m:25s into the video.
You can watch the video here.
Julia read the following question off a piece of paper: "As I was walking in I saw a lot of signs outside saying mean things about reforming healthcare. How do kids know what is true and why do people want a new system that can help more of us".
Yeah, that was totally spontaneous.
Of course those "mean things" were on posters being held by angry Americans who weren’t allowed under the big tent to participate. No dissent allowed in Hopey Changey Land!
Of course, this "totally unrehearsed and random comment" gave Obama a perfect lead in to talk about Sarah Palin’s brilliant "death panel" comment that has all of the democrats scrambling, as well as talking about not killing grandma off. And of course, blame it all on the Republicans (who don’t have enough votes to stop anything.)
The fact that there will be, in fact, defacto "death panels" has been discussed everywhere, so we’ll let that be for now.
The important thing here to know is who sweet little Julie Hall is. You would think in this day and age if someone is going to go out and pretend to be just some civilian off the street, they’d either delete their Facebook account, or radically change it up. But we are dealing with liberals here, not exactly brain surgeons.
As you see from the photos here, and a screen shot of the video, Julie’s mother is democrat insider Kathleen Manning Hall seen posing and smiling with our fearless leader, Barack Obama!
Even more interesting is the fact that this randomly chosen young Julie, lives in Malden, MA, as does Kathleen.
Kathleen Manning Hall's campaign contributions list the occupation "Legal Asst, Looney and Grossman LLP" and a home address in Malden MA:
Looks like she donated $636 to Obama in 2008.
But wait, there's more:
This lists donations to Obama of $230 on 6/15/07, $250 on 9/28/07, $500 on 9/30/07, $300 on 3/2/08
On that link we have the $636 previously mentioned from "Kathleen Manning Hall" but we also have $1355 donated to Obama by "Kathleen Hall, Legal Assistant, Looney & Grossman" at the same address.
Looney and Grossman loves Democrats - their employees donated $12,101 in total to Democrats and $0 to Republicans.
Back to Kathleen's Facebook Page, here are some of her Facebook friends. A quick trip to Google will find out these friends are all big time Democratic insiders:
Martha Coakley, (Democrat) Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
Adam Parkhomenko, former aide to Hillary Clinton, Democrat running for VA House of Delegates (who has the support of the Brady Campaign, President Clinton and Wes Clark)
Addisu Demissie, National Political Director of Organizing for America and former Ohio Get out The Vote director of Obama for America
Adrienne Elrod, Chief of Staff to Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA)
Alan Rosenblatt, Associate Director for Online Advocacy at the Center for American Progress (and Huffington Post blogger)
Alayna Van Tassel, Budget and Policy Director for MA Senator Pat Jehlen
So much for the "randomly picked" question.
This is as pathetic as it gets.
The democrat are crashing and burning on the health care issue. Scott Rasmussen’s latest poll has support for Obamacare at a new low and circling the drain.
Obama’s townhall was a rambling, incoherent mess. He told many whoppers, like the fact that AARP is supporting his plan. They have come out and said they are not, and did that long before Obama’s NH dog and pony show.
He also brought up the Post Office vs UPS and Fed Ex as a sales pitch for government run health care.
It was just a very bad day.

What makes this delicious is all of the crowing the democrats, who invented political astroturfing, have been doing in regard to the real grass roots activism that millions of Americans are getting involved in.
Speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi first called all of this genuine anger astroturf back in April when all of the tea parties were in high gear as seen on the video here.
Madam Pelosi has continued her outright hatred towards the ordinary American people by pronouncing the townhall protesters astroturf too. A few days later Harry Reid and fellow slug Chuck Schumer chimed in a well. You have to wonder if they understand who their bosses are and who signs their paychecks!
And again, this from the group who invented political astroturfing!
Obama’s man, David Axelrod is the king of astroturf!
And Obama himself was a trainer of "thugs for hire" back in his ACORN days! And he had zero problem with calling out the union kneebreakers from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) to beat up some unarmed American patriots who have attended townhalls to protest.
All of this disgraceful talk about honest Americans prompted AstroTurf Chairman Michael Dennis to come out and express his outrage that these sleazy democrats were using his product to attack the American people.
As if to double down on stupidity, a democrat party specialty, Nancy Pelosi dragged her number two man Steny Hoyer, along for a great little op-ed, where she called the patriotic men and women who oppose their insane communist plans "un-American!"
Amazingly, for 8 long years we heard these same loons lecture us that dissent was the truest form of patriotism. That speaking truth to power was cool. Now it’s a crime against the state!
They have to lie about everything they do because no one would ever elect them as dog catcher if they actually told the truth about what they were up to!
It’s time for all of America to join together. I mean ALL of America.
Barack Obama and the democrat party have declared war on all of us.
They have declared war on the American citizen.
They have flat decided that even though most of the nation wants them to stand down, stop spending our great grandkid’s future, and leave the best health care on earth alone, they are still going to go full steam ahead and build themselves a communist utopia anyhow!
It’s really pretty pathetic though, when they have to bring out a sweet innocent girl like Julie Hall to shill for them!
I’d say that Barack Obama and the democrats should be ashamed of themselves, but that is a foreign concept to this pathetic bunch!
